EVELYN BAILEY 

" Ev" 

College Course Three years 

Odeon '24, '25 

Evelyn has a lot of nice characteristics, but 
when you try to find the most important, well, 
it's hard. She must have been born with a chip 
of the rock of Gibraltar in her mouth, as well as 
the proverbial "gold spoon," for she can be 
relied on: — "ask 'Ev', she'll do it' — and she 
does, without doleful sighs, either. Thank 
goodness she belongs to '25. 




ELEANOR GRACE BODWELL 

"El", " Bodbun"

Northfield Delegate '24 Calendar Committee '25 

Though she lives in Bradford, that fact seem? 
only to make her more loyal to Abbot, and 
"Bodbun" is one of our old "standbys." We all 
remember "Bodbun" in the play as the sweet, 
shy, retiring Constance, and it makes us laugh 
when we think of her in real life, because she 
really isn't retiring, you know. "Bodbun" 
hopes to go to Simmons — our good luck goes 
with her.

It's hard to find an outstanding feature in one 
whose successes and accomplishments are as 
varied as Elaine's. She really is a wonder at 
anything she undertakes. We know, too, that 
she will rise to as great heights in social circles as 
she has in Abbot circles, and will expect to hear 
more of our "deb" soon.

Draper Dramatics '25 Honor Roll '25 

What is that streak of color flying around the 
tennis court? Why, that's Bubbles Burtnett, 
our champion tennis star, in her famous black and 
red striped "blazer." And woe be unto the 
Bradford girl who dares to challenge her. She's 
bound to meet defeat! Bubbles is some actress, 
too (or rather actor). As Tony Lumpkin, the 
apple of his mother's eye and the torment of his 
cousin's life, she scored a distinct success. But 
honestly, Bubbles, do you think you'll ever 
reach "years of discretion?"

Bible Group Leader '25 Advisory Board '24 

Croquet Team '25 Arm Band '23 

Chairman Prom Committee '25 

Managing Committee Bazaar '25 

An unforgetable memory in the minds of the 
Senior class is Peg, spectacles on nose and book in 
hand and an expression of deep concern on her 
face, calling the roll and reading the minutes of 
countless "last meetings." She has a unique 
and indescribable sense of humor that sends 
defenseless humans into convulsions of laughter, 
and best of all she is considered one of the 
dearest girls in her class. 




MARGARET DANIELL 

"Danny" 
Laurium, Mich. 



Wellesley 
Fidelio '24 



One and one-half years 
Odeon '25 



When Danny first came to Abbot she wvis the 
meekest, shyest little girl you ever saw, but how 
she has changed since she bobbed her long, 
luxuriant tresses! At Intervale she certainly 
took the prize for fancy skating. But the thing 
that startled us most was when Danny plunged 
into a snowdrift in her bathing-suit! We 
wonder if you were just feeling extra peppy, Dan, 
or were you trying to work up an appetite for 
those scrumptious griddle-cakes and maple 
syrup?

Rufus doesn't say much except when moving 
us to tears with tales of the poor and or- 
phaned, but her lack of boisterousness is almost 
equal to her efficiency. Some day she shall hold 
the reins of government in her hands which can 
produce unequalled music from anything, be it 
hurdy-gurdy, or organ. We foresee a great 
future for Rufus and by the gods of fun and 
foresight she'll deserve it.

Hockey Numerals '25 A. D. S. Play '25 

A. D. hails from Texas and we all like to 
hear her talk — that southern drawl! A. D. is 
president of A. D. S. and no dramatic production 
at Abbot is complete without her. Her ambition 
is to go on the stage and we know that if she does 
she'll be a big success. A. D. is one of the old 
standbys of our class; somehow Abbot just 
wouldn't be Abbot if she weren't here.

Hockey Numerals '23, '24

Secretary-Treasurer Q. E. D. '25 

If anyone hears frantic cries of: "Oh, dear, 
I'm a wreck," in staccato tones, there's Jean 
Gordon somewhere around. On Monday life is 
very hard but Jean is a plucky little thing and 
lives through it. When you see her determined 
jaw shut with an equal of at least two hundred 
horse power, you question any reason for groans. 
Jean's a peach, though she may deny that fact 
unless she is too busy looking for a man under 
the bed.

President '25 

She certainly is accomplished for if she chooses 
to be the charming damsel in distress she could 
cause a disastrous amount of palpitation of the 
heart among the guests at our Prom. But on the 
stage, how many feminine hearts begin to dance a 
variety of fandango when her romantic, mas- 
culine form appears! And a scientist of note, 
beside — oh Migs!

Second Hockey Team '24 

At any time from nine to two on Wednesday 
mornings you may call at "Fritz's" room. Out 
of a cloud of dust emerges "Fritz," a rug in one 
hand and a broom in the other. We wonder if 
she keeps Peg busy or vice versa? Fritz is our 
"little girl, " but her quality is 100% wool and a 
yard wide. Here's to her — may she never 
shrink! 




EUNICE ESTES HUNTSMAN* 
"Eunie" 
West Newton, Mass. 
New England Conservatory of Music

Student Government President '24, '25 

Honor Roll '24 

Eunie is the head of Stu. G., and a very efficient 
one she makes for she keeps us all in the straight 
and narrow path. She made a name for herself 
in croquet and hockey and on Class Day she 
showed us that though she is quiet she certainly 
isn't slow. Eunie has great talent in the musical 
line and we only wish that we had the opportun- 
ity of hearing her play more frequently. A 
great part of the success of '25 is due to Eunie, 
and the hard work she has done.

Odeon '24, '25 Bible Group Leader '25 

We hear a crash of storms descending and 
buffaloes stampeding! Be calm, 'tis naught but 
"Ted" indulging in a snicker or two. But she 
isn't just laughs. She has a voice that would 
charm a bird off the tree. Teddy rides, too, 
although we have not ^een it; it is rumored that 
she wears white breeches and black boots!

"T" the versatile! Is there anything she 
can't do? She's athletic; indeed, she's captain of 
our noble hockey team; she's poetic, and some 
day she's going to have a book of her poems 
published; she's dramatic, remember the Senior 
Mid play and the Draper Dramatics? Now 
"T" 's a dignified Senior and second vice-presi- 
dent of Stu. G., and ye good old days of the fourth 
floor are only a happy memory, but she still has 
the same old pep. Wellesley surely has some- 
thing good in store for it.

Vice-President Junior Mid Class 

Treasurer Senior Mid Class 

No matter whether it is rose-colored Tuesday 
evening or blue Monday morning, one can always 
hear cheerful warbles issuing from Lot's room. 
She's a blessing to the bookstore (visions of her 
at sixty with spectacles on nose, presiding over 
the Congressional Library) , and a sphinx at times, 
for you never can tell when the corners of her 
eyes are going to crinkle and when she is going to 
indulge in one of her unique fits of laughter.

Here's one of our real athletes! Betty was one 
of our champion tennis players so she sought for 
new worlds to conquer and made the Basketball 
team. What would we have done without her on 
Bradford day! But Betty's ability isn't confined 
to sports by any means, and we're all agreed 
she's a little bit of all right.

"Mac" has led our class for some time and 
we've always been proud of her and always will 
be. Music is Mac's special forte though her 
abi'ity in other lines is not to be slighted. She 
and Eunie have a great time rooming together 
and when they get the giggles there's no stopping 
them. Mac is our honor "A" girl and she cer- 
tainly deserves it, for aside from being athletic 
and one of our leaders, she's a perfect peach, and 
everyone likes her. We don't see how '25 could 
get on without Mac, in fact, we know it just 
couldn't.

Look at "Sally" in chapel; all attention, eyes 
straight ahead, feet and face profile. Look at her 
any other time. Eyes all over her face and legs

her dignified moments she keeps Odeon straight, 
the rest of the time, we all keep her in hand.

Anyone who has seen "Mittie" on the hockey 
field will not be surprised to know that she is 
president of the A. A. A. As for her dramatic 
ability — well ! she is surely qualified for Broad- 
way, and we feel, could easily outshine Ann 
Pennington and her famous legs. But seriously, 
" Mittie" has done a lot of hard work for Abbot, 
and her loyalty has been unswerving.

When she is on the street she is as dignified as a 
country parson's aunt, but on the third floor 
between nine and nine-thirty in the evening — ■ 
well, she has a versatile nature. She is a joy to 
anyone who wants a good time, and the despair 
of a biographer. She is a notorious animal 
tamer. Her room seems overflowing with bears. 
Yes, she is dignified, in spots, but she won't grow 
up.

"Oh, if my hair is going to come down, let it," 
and with that she pulls it down herself. That and 
" I don't see this math, I know I'm stupid, but — ■" 
are always sufficient to let us know who is here. 
But she can be awfully serious when she speaks 
on the merits of Coolidge or when she urges you 
not to buy that can of peanut butter!

We never realized we had an honest-to-good- 
ness poetess in our midst, until one morning in 
English class Lila surprised us with the most 
marvelous poetry. Poetry isn't her only strong 
point, though. You just ought to see her on the 
tennis court! We've noticed that the vicinity 
of Boston, especially Cambridge, seems to hold a 
peculiar attraction and interest for Miss Rich. 
Is it Tech or Harvard? Or maybe both? How 
about it, Lila?

Although "Betsey" is our class man-hater, 
we often hear her talking of Jackie — but 
Jackie, let it be understood, is only a canine. 
When she is ready for hockey, Betsey looks like 
Alice in Wonderland, but on the stage when she 
slicks back that lovely blond hair, she makes an 
extremely handsome man. With her wonderful 
ability as an inspiring Bible Group Leader, we 
hope that she will carry on this work out in the 
wide, wide world.

"Just a wreck — just a wreck." We don't 
understand how "Saggy" can be "just a wreck," 
when she is one of the more fortunate few who 
have obtained the honor roll without pretense of 
study or worry. Her attainments lie in other 
directions too, and the Hill is a warm rival of the 
Courant and the honor roll.

Sperry is head of the entertainment committee

"Chub," famous among other things for her

you. If Chub once starts a thing it is done, and 
well done, in short order: she's an actor of no 
mean talent "an' I don't mean maybe an' ain't 
insinuatin' per-haps." She's our basketball 
captain and surely can play the game • — in fact 
she's mighty efficient in everything.

She knows Abbot inside out and has been here 
four exciting years so there is a lot of weeping and 
wailing going on (sotto voce) because she is 
leaving. She is a most valuable person, for 
aside from being tolerated by her friends there is 
nothing under the so-called canopy that she 
can't do from a "double shuffle" to an "Angel's 
Serenade." We aren't the only ones who think 
that she's all right, either.

"It seems to me" that Libby is one of the

you'd let us in on the secret of how to keep a

In rhythmic we all just envy her and wonder 
why we are so awkward. Her contagious little 
giggle never fails to cheer you up, and she has the 
most fascinating way of talking. That's not all 
that's fascinating about her either. Ask Billy, 
he knows!

Impressions of Phyl playing basketball! She's 
here and there and everywhere ! And can we ever 
forget those purple bloomers? I guess not! 
Phyl's musical as well as athletic. We really 
expect her to be a second Paderewski some day if 
she keeps on at the rate she's going now! Phyllis 
is like the girl in the story — . She has a little 
curl right down the middle of her forehead, and 
when she is good she is very, very good, and 
when she is bad — we like her just the same!

German Play '25 

Dot is a combination of broad grin, mischievous 
eyes and an almost omnipresent violin. She's 
usually bubbling over with energy and good fun, 
but on the stage before her rapt public she 
changes into a mistress of ceremonies and cir- 
cumstances. If an earthquake caused Davis 
Hall to collapse Dot would remain calmly playing 
to the elements, probably seated on a shaking 
rafter.

Wfje Btarp of a jHemfoer of tfje 
Cla&S of 1925 

Apologies to Mrs. Pepys 

Sept. 1920-June 1921. 

Did arrive at school betimes feeling very sad and blue, wishing me back 
home with my family. Was made to feel very insignificant upon being addressed 
superciliously as a "Prep" by a Senior. Did make many mistakes known as 
"boners," such as: 

(1) Not rising when guests entered the library. 

(2) Not stepping aside for Faculty and Seniors to go through doors. 

(3) Not bowing to Miss Bailey for the first week when leaving the dining- 
room. 

(4) Did walk on sacred circle and was made to feel decidedly small and 
minute. 

(5) Did speak to Jimmy Smith on street, who is from my home town and 
attends Phillips. Was duly informed that I must not speak to boys "on the hill," 
by the president of Stu. G., of whom I was much in awe. I do not understand 
this, as my mother thinks him a goodly boy. 

By spring of said year did feel worn out and sadly in need of vacation. In 
June did travel to Boston with host of chaperons and dispersed to my home town 
to tell of my year's experience and advancement. 

Sept. 1921-June 1922. 

Did return to school as a Junior and did greet my school-fellows joyfully. 
Did feel mighty superior to "new girls," having advantage of knowing some of the 
rules. Although did know rules did manage to break several during the year. Was 
brought before Stu. G. for having feast in bathtub, which seemed to me quite 
proper. Was placed "on bounds" and did promenade about the circle for one 
week. Our class did have a picnic at Pomp's Pond. Did fall in the water but 
managed to conceal the fact from the chaperons. Did part from my friends 
with great grief and wailing in the spring of said year. 

29 



The Abbot Circle 192 5 



Sept. 1922-June 1923. 

Did arrive in Andover feeling much grown-up — in acknowledgment of 
which did spend my last half dollar on a taxi. Did talk all night with my friends 
on our adventures of the summer, suffering for it on the following day by being 
very hoarse and sleepy. Did feel a certain responsibility as a Junior-Mid and 
did instruct many Preps and Juniors on the ways of Abbot. Was invited to an 
Andover Prom by Jimmy Smith, but was unable to go, not being an upper class- 
man. This did hurt my pride, but I recovered as soon as I was able to see Jimmy 
every Friday night but for two weeks when I was on restrictions for writing said 
Jimmy a note. Did leave in June feeling very sad at never seeing the Seniors 
again. Consoled myself only by remembering that I should be a Senior-Mid next 
year and not miss them. 



Sept. 1923-June 1924. 

School did open as usual. Did arrive with much savoir-faire, not deigning to 
yell at the sight of old friends. Was very kind to new girls, telling them many 
strange tales, all of which were not strictly true. Did hold our picnic in the even- 
ing and Miss Bailey did attend. We did have coffee and I did lie awake all night, 
not being accustomed to it. Did go to Andover Prom with Jimmy Smith and did 
smile benignly on the under classmen that did hang over railing to see my dress. 
Did have many pangs and heart-throbs over mid-year exams, fearing I did flunk 
Physics as I was kept awake the night before by the sounds of rejoicing on the Hill 
where Andover did beat Exeter in swimming. Did attend our Prom, dragging 
Jimmy. Was amused and touched when I noted the under class girls in the organ 
loft. I did make Jimmy look up and wave, which I did think was big-hearted. 
Did attend the Senior Mid banquet which I did enjoy immensely. I do think it 
fortunate that no legs or arms were broken. We did receive the trowel from the 
Class of '24 and did begin to feel our responsibility as Seniors. Did find the 
speeches very touching at Commencement, and could not refrain a tear. Did 
part for the summer with many promises to write, and expostulations as to our 
positions next year. 



Sept. 1924-June 1925. 

Did arrive at school in downpour to usher new girls to their rooms. Did 
spend the entire day consoling weeping new girls, hardly having time to appreciate 
the front room which I did possess. Miss Bailey did greet me with a kiss which 

30 



The Abbot Circle 19 2 5 



did make me realize the honor of being a Senior. Did go to Senior picnic which 
was held at Haggett's Pond — Pomp's being considered too plebeian for Seniors. 
Did romp about at picnic, forgetting for the moment our great dignity. Did lecture 
several Preps and Juniors for disobeying rules and did impress them with their 
responsibilities to be good. Was much impressed and touched when a Prep pulled 
out my chair at dinner — was much ashamed when I did knock over a fork from 
the shock. Did squeeze through mid-years with bated breath, just passing. After 
which, did feel in need of a vacation and the trip to Intervale was welcomed. Did 
enjoy Intervale properly. Did wallow in the snow and get stuck up to my 'neck 
for nearly ten minutes. Did hate to come back to bells and studies, but felt some- 
what refreshed. Families by the thousands did arrive for the Senior play. Was 
worn out introducing people and acting. The play did go off well with no more 
than the usual mishaps. Did go to the Senior Prom, dragging Jimmy from Har- 
vard. Did enjoy myself immensely as the Senior-Mids did do all the work. Did 
also enjoy the Senior banquet as they did do all the work for that also. Was very 
excited and flustered as I did run around the table and did feel very big when 
Jimmy was cheered. . Did weep when we did give away the Senior Parlor — ■ did 
not enjoy the thought of others occupying the Parlor. 

Miss Bailey did present us with our diplomas. Did open mine and did read it 
carefully to make sure there was no mistake. Did bid a tearful goodbye to my 
Alma Mater and school fellows, firmly grasping my diploma the while. Do feel 
that I do know more than when entered, but am rather doubtful as to how much.

Oh we've been way up to Intervale, 
To the land of ice and snow, 
And altho' we're glad to be back here, 
We sure did hate to go. 

Chorus 

Hello Abbot, 

How do you do? 

Oh we've been way up to Intervale 

But we've come back to you. 

Oh we rose up in the early dawn 
To see the sunrise bright, 
And we had a grand and glorious day 
And turned in late that night. 
Chorus 

For breakfast we had steak and chops 
Pancakes and syrup too, 
And we had so awfully much to eat, 
We didn't know what to do. 
Chorus. 



When we arrived at dear Intervale 

We oh-ed and we ah-ed 

Then started outside. 

We tried the toboggan, snowshoes, and skis 

And how we did slide. 

Such fun — nearly died ! 

Slid down the valley, 

No one did dally. 

No one was sad, simply wasn't the fad 

For we had no cares. 

36 



The Abbot Circle 19 2 5 

No books nor bug-bears. 
So how could we help but be glad? 
* * * * 

The cow-bells rang, 

The shutters banged, 

But still we slept upstairs. 

Miss Bailey came to wake us up 

And caught us unawares. 

We looked the scenery over, 

And oh, what we did see, 

Mount Washington arrayed in rose, 

Serene in majesty. 

Oh Intervale, Intervale, etc. 

We went skijoring and exploring, 
Skied and snowshoed too, 
But trailing surely takes the prize, 
It's lucky we're back to you. — 
Because we're cut and bumped and bruised 
And all our limbs are maimed 

And we are here to tell you that we'll never be the same. 
Oh Intervale, Intervale, etc. 

* * * * 

Sure a little bit of Heaven, 

Fell from out the sky one day 
And it nestled in New Hampshire 

Not so many miles away. 
And when the angels found it 

Sure, it looked so sweet and fair, 
They said "Suppose we leave it 

For it is so peaceful there." 
So, they sprinkled it with sunshine 

Just to make the pine trees grow. 
They're the finest ones that can be found 

No matter where you go. 
And they placed the mountains round it 

Just to keep away the gale 
And when they had it finished 

Sure, they called it Intervale!

parting &ong 

And now the first part of our race is run, 

And we have reached the parting of the 
ways. 

May the traditions of the School we love, 

Shine like a beacon in the coming days. 



Can we discern the roads that stretch far on 

Into the dimness of the future years? 

Shall we attain the high road of success 

Or, tread the low path of our doubts and fears? 

By the unwavering light of our ideals, 
And constant striving' for the high and good 
May we, unfaltering, find the upward path 
That leads us to a nobler womanhood.

Father, I know that all my life 

Is portioned out for me; 
The changes that are sure to come 

| j : I do not fear to see ; : 1 1 
But I ask Thee for a present mind 

Intent on pleasing Thee. 

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love 
Through constant watching wise, 

To meet the glad with joyful smiles, 
|| : And to wipe the weeping eyes: || 

And a heart at leisure from itself, 
To soothe and sympathize. 

Wherever in the world I am, 

In whatso'er estate, 
I have a fellowship of hearts 

|| : To keep and cultivate; : || 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 

So I ask Thee for the daily strength, 

To none that ask denied, 
And a mind to blend with outward life 

|| : While keeping at Thy side; : || 
Content to fill a little space 

If Thou be glorified.

On a bright November morning, the Bradford girls arrived en masse and were 
welcomed by Abbot, uniformly arrayed. Having greeted our guests as a whole, 
with songs, we escorted our respective Bradford-ites on a tour of acquaintance 
with our school. The sports began with tennis in which our representatives 
showed their great skill and their wonderful spirit. The clock golf tournament 
had an outcome which showed that Abbot was proficient in golf as well as in 
tennis. The two "Marjories" from Bradford tied our girls in croquet. There 
was no opportunity to play the rubber. 

By noon we were quite ready for the delicious luncheon which was served at 
long tables in the "gym." After this we had a song rally in front of McKeen. Then 
we made a dash for the hockey field where another victory awaited Abbot. The 
game was well played from beginning to end and our team made a splendid show- 
ing. The basketball game which was the last event of the day ended with a sweep- 
ing victory for Abbot. The team work and fair play which was shown by the 
opposing team throughout the day was of the finest possible kind. The Bradford 
girls proved their sportsmanship in the wonderful way they received their defeat 
and before their departure we were agreed that we had all participated in one of 
the finest Abbot-Bradford days in the history of the school. 

We escorted the visitors to the waiting trolleys and, having sung our farewell 
song, we snake-danced back to school. After dinner, came a meeting in the 
recreation room, and the "A's" were given out by Miss Bailey, to the girls who 
had played on the teams. 

When it was all over each one felt that it was perhaps the spirit of the two 
schools and the friendliness which exists between them, that gave to the day its 
fullest satisfaction, and deepest significance.

&\>t Stoops to Conquer 

The first scene takes place in Squire Hardcastle's drawing room. We become 
acquainted with the jolly Squire, Mrs. Hardcastle, the doting mother, and Tony, 
the impossible "apple-of-his-mother's-eye." Just as Tony tears out of the door 
headed for the Three Pigeons, an alehouse, with his pleading mother clinging to his 
coat-tails, we catch the first glimpse of our heroine, Kate Hardcastle. The Squire 
tells her of the expected arrival of a suitor, the son of Sir Charles Marlowe. Kate 
is quite excited about this news and tells her cousin, Constance Neville, whom 
Mrs. Hardcastle hopes will sometime be her own precious Tony's wife. Miss 
Neville discovers that he is the intimate friend of her own admirer, Mr. Hastings. 
The second scene is in the Three Pigeons with the boisterous drinkers sitting 
around the table, smoking and singing. Presently two young gentlemen enter 
to inquire the way to Squire Hardcastle's. Tony, the mischievous rascal, recog- 
nizes them as Marlowe and Hastings, and decides to play one of his practical 
jokes. He directs his father's guests to his home, giving them the impression 
that the Hardcastle house is an Inn and that the Squire is a wealthy landlord 
who wishes to be considered a gentleman. 

In the second act, preparations are being energetically made in the Hard- 
castle household. It is very amusing to hear the Squire drill his awkward servants 
in their duties, an effort which is entirely wasted for when the bell at the gate 
peals out the arrival of the guests, pandemonium breaks loose among their ranks. 
Marlow and his companion, thinking the Squire merely the landlord of the Inn, 
treat him accordingly and the bewildered old man is amazed at their apparent 
rudeness. However, Mr. Hastings and Constance meet and she tells him where 
he is. They decide not to tell young Marlowe, and when Kate appears, tell him 
that she too is staying at the inn. They leave him alone with Kate, and the poor 
fellow becomes so embarrassed and self-conscious that he cannot talk and in his 
hurry to get out he bumps into all the chairs. Kate does not like it because the 
young suitor kept his eyes cast on the floor all during their conversation, never 
fully seeing her face, so when he mistakes her for the bar-maid she keeps up the 
role. He loses his bashfulness when he thinks he is with the barmaid, and ventures 
to look at her. He immediately falls in love, and of course we are very amused 
because we know her true identity. 

Tony, who is glad to get rid of his cousin, Con, is very willing to help Constance 
and Hastings to run away. The last scene of the play is very amusing. Marlowe

learns Kate's identity. The two runaways, Constance and Hastings, return and 
are forgiven. Last but not least Tony discovers that he has reached years of 
discretion and is his own master. Just before the final curtain, Kate steps for- 
ward to the footlights and with an arch smile says to the audience: 

"Thus having stooped to conquer with success, 
And gained a husband without aid of dress, 
Still as a barmaid I could wish it, too, 
As I have conquered him, to conquer — you!" 

We all agree unanimously that she has been successful.

Antiques 

As the curtain slowly rose we saw before us Mrs. Lydia Sprowls and Amelie 
Boyden busily engaged in the difficult task of "tidyin' up the parlor" after their 
mother's funeral. Funerals do so upset a house you know ! Amelie took advantage 
of this opportunity to inform her sister that she had decided to live in the village 
where she was the schoolteacher. In spite of tearful entreaties and reproachful 
remonstrances, she stood firm in her decision. 

During their cleaning they came across an old teapot which had served as the 
family bank for as long as they could remember. Suddenly Lydia had a brilliant 
inspiration. Claire Van Ness, a collector of antiques who was staying in the 
village, was expected to call for some fresh eggs. Perhaps she might give a lot of 
money for the teapot. Amelie said that she would never sell anything that 
recalled such tender remembrances of her mother to a person who would have no 
sentiment whatsoever for it, but Lydia insisted that the teapot was hers to do 
what she pleased with. 

A furious honking of an automobile horn was heard in the yard and their 
argument was interrupted. Soon Miss Van Ness entered. Lydia eagerly brought 
forth the teapot and almost quivering with excitement showed it to her. She 
examined it carefully and then replied that it was imitation, probably made in 
Connecticut a few years ago. Lydia was heart-broken, and left the room. While 
she was gone, Miss Van Ness notices a bit of old tapestry that Amelie is holding. 
Amelie tells her that it has been in the family for a long time. Miss Van Ness 
became very much excited and offered unbelievable sums, but Amelie would not 
part with it on account of the precious associations it had. Miss Van Ness said 
she must hurry, so Lydia went to get the eggs. Smiling patronizingly at Amelie, 
she. said she would give her sister five dollars for the old teapot because she had 
been so disappointed to find it worthless. Amelie went for some paper to wrap 
it up in. Miss Van Ness advanced to the front of the stage and holding the 
teapot before her, and gazing at it with a triumphant glint in her eyes, murmured, 

"'Genuine Holland Delft. Two hundred years old! Mmm, it's a good 
bargain!"

The awe-inspiring sound of the Chinese gong, echoing and re-echoing weirdly 
through the silence, announced the opening of the play. The chorus, consisting 
of a solitary member, introduced us to the characters — the gallant hero, Chang- 
Sut-Yen, the beautiful maiden, Kwen-Lin, and her proud father, the Mandarin. 
Of course Chang-Sut-Yen and the fair Kwen-Lin were in love with one another, 
and of course the Mandarin was opposed to their marriage. He wanted to give 
his daughter to wealthy Tayin of Canton in a marriage strictly for mercenary 
purposes and void of all romance. Had he but known that his servant Chang- 
Sut-Yen was no other than the son of Chang-Won-Yen the Great, what innu- 
merable troubles might have been averted! When Kwen-Lin learned of her 
father's plans for her future, she pretended to die. The unsuspecting Mandarin 
clapped his hands to summon the servant. Cleverly Chang-Sut-Yen suggested 
that his master go for help, and the two lovers, left alone, decided to run away. 

The Property Manager lent humor to this scene with her silent goings and 
comings. 

For a long time the lovers fied, with the angry Mandarin pursuing. Finally 
as they were crossing a bridge, Kwen-Lin, worn out, was whirled into the stream, 
and Chang-Sut-Yen was killed by the father. But here the God of Fate inter- 
vened. He was too good to die, and his heart was returned to him. And more 
wonderful still, Kwen-Lin was recalled from her watery grave back to the land of 
the living. The Mandarin was amazed at the will of Fate, and humbled at learning 
Chang-Sut-Yen's identity. As the curtain fell we caught a last glimpse of the 
joyfully reunited lovers and the father going forth to prepare the wedding feast.

A walk through a park bordered with swaying palm trees. Such was the 
setting. Harlequin and Pierrot sauntered in engaged with discussing Columbine. 
We were very much surprised to learn that even though all the poets have depicted 
Pierrot as being desperately in love with Columbine, he actually disliked her. 
Harlequin is the one who really adores her. They strolled off, and Punchinello, 
the old pedlar, came along crying out his wares. Columbine and her maid, 
Margot, happened to be walking in the park too. Columbine always hoped that 
she might see her beloved Harlequin. Suddenly they became aware of Punchin- 
ello, raving about his charms to attract love, and immediately the girl is interested. 
She tried on the magic slipper which had the power of making everyone love its 
wearer, and when Punchinello, having succumbed to the charm, began making 
love to her, she fled frightened, taking the slipper with her. 

While Punchinello was bewailing the loss of his slipper, Harlequin passed by 
and became interested in the wonder hat which made its wearer invisible. He put 
it on his head and of course became invisible to the pedlar. After crying loudly 
for his hat, poor Punchinello went off in search of his slipper. Margot and 
Columbine appeared again, and unaware of Harlequin's presence, they discussed 
the slipper. Suddenly Pierrot came and fell in love with her. The two girls 
amused themselves by tossing the slipper back and forth and watching Pierrot 
adore first one and then the other. Finally Harlequin couldn't stand this any 
longer, but lo and behold when he tried to pull off his hat it stuck. He cried out 
his plight to the astonished listeners. Just then Punchinello came and demanded 
his hat and slipper. There ensued an argument between the golden-haired Colom- 
bine and proud Harlequin over who should give up his gift first. Finally they 
settled it by taking them off at the same time, and the play ended happily.

On Tuesday evening, March 3, the German Department presented an 
interesting program. The first number was a group of delightful German folk- 
songs sung by some of the girls in the German classes. Then came the German 
play entitled "An American Duel." 

The story centers around a young girl, Helene von Stern, whose hand is being 
sought by two ardent suitors, Freiher von Roden and Alfeld. Helene, desiring to 
find out which one really loves her, plans with her maid Charlotte a way of trying 
them out. She invites them both to call the same afternoon and in various ways 
tests them. While Helene is out of the room von Roden and Alfeld have an 
American duel as they call it ; they draw lots to see who will support the other in 
his pursuit of Helene. Von Roden wins, and as he was also the more successful 
throughout the tests he feels that he has indeed won the favor of Helene. Helene, 
however, after a short conversation alone with Alfeld decides that it is he who 
really loves her. 

Margaret Creelman as Helene von Stern was most charming and Edda 
Renouf and June Hinman as the two lovers played their parts exceedingly well. 
Dorothy Beeley as Charlotte was very pretty and vivacious. The whole evening 
was novel and very entertaining for us all. We're certainly proud of our German 
Department.

Hacfjrpmoge Hament 

No war-horse, smelling slaughter in the air 
Can race with greater swiftness to the fray, 
Nor in his round of countless duties, cram 
More work than we, into the fleeting day. 

No storied urn, or animated bust 
Have e'er beheld more needful labor done 
Than have these walls of Abbot, here about, 
When we poor students fall, rise up, and run. 

Half open eyes and drooping mouths admit 
Fatigue, that has no equal in this sphere, 
And stammered words or muddled brain point out 
The pace we're running is indeed severe. 

We must admit we're lazy — some of us, 
And sometimes fevered, often temperamental. 
We strive to learn, we seek for truth, but lo! 
Our studying is often incidental. 

We're absent-minded, logy, nervous wrecks, 
We groan, and gasp and gurgle, "Give us rest!" 
And pray for twenty hours' solid sleep, — 
Of gifts divine the loveliest and best. 

Repose and rest for heavy laden souls 
Bowed down with duty, sorrow, toil and care. 
Oh blessed pillow, and oh, bed sublime 
Receive us in thine arms and keep us there.
